Shirley’s Thai Noodle Salad

This cold pasta dish is so amazing, it’s great for a hot day when you still want the comfort of pasta.  It can be a side dish or you can add some grilled chicken (or protein of choice) and call it a meal.

Dressing Ingredients:  

  •  ½ c. canola oil
  • ¼ c. sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes

Dressing Instructions:

  • Heat mixture over medium heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and leave at room temp. for 2 hours.

After 2 hours…

  • Cook 1 lb of spaghetti (angel hair), drain and rinse.
  • Reheat oil and strain pepper flakes out.
  • Add to oil:  5 Tbs. soy sauce
                     6 Tbs. honey

Toss with noodles.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours

Before serving…

Add:  

  • ½ c. chopped green onions
  • ½ c. cilantro (optional)
  • 2 Tbs. sesame seeds lightly toasted
  • Top with ¾ c. chopped peanuts right before serving
